Educational     Light Appetizers      Tasting (sit down)     Wine    

Italy is the world’s second largest wine producer, but navigating an Italian wine section can be a daunting task. In this beginners wine class, our Eatalian wine expert will help you to distinguish Italian grapes and taste wine like a pro. 

One thing that makes Italian wines so fascinating is the diversity in both culture and geography throughout the country. We will explore the different wine regions within Italy, indigenous Italian grapes and the proper method to sip, swirl and taste. We will guide you through a selection of 5 Italian vini accompanied by Italian antipasti. Guests will receive wine tasting notes to take home.
